Agile Software Development
There are multiple benefits to using cloud-based applications, especially in strategic sourcing. Among them are reduced costs, lower I/T resource requirements, no upgrades, access to extended resources and information, and interoperability with other systems.
One of the most significant benefits is the ability to quickly respond to changes and new developments by making rapid improvements. The key way to do this is through Agile Software Development. Cloud application development is fast and flexible. It is different from traditional software development in that it enables our team to consistently deliver new features to our customers.
Like many cloud-based software companies, Scanmarket employs Agile software development methods. Agile methodology is based on iterative, incremental development and enables rapid, flexible response to change. Agile lends itself perfectly to cloud application development, and to the way we work at Scanmarket.
Supporting a single cloud platform eliminates unnecessary work. This enables our team to realize the full potential of Agile development methods. Every customer gets every release, eliminating all backward compatibility, operating system, and protocol issues.
